Tanya Tagaq has released “Tongues” with accompanying video, created by 3D animator Driftnote. The video for “Tongues” is an unmistakable analogy for language reclamation. Watch a mouth’s epic fight for survival as tongue and cross clash on a tundra battleground here.
“Tongues” is the first single from Tagaq’s new album of the same title, produced by Saul Williams. With exceptional power and staggering genius, Tongues is Tanya at her most explicit and specific. In Tongues, delicate, poetic passages from Split Tooth, Tagaq’s bestselling, award winning mythobiography, crash against an industrial, electronic exoskeleton.
